We are excited to start floating again (we need it at least as much as you do), and we want to make sure we are doing everything we possibly can to keep you and our staff safe. We still believe that floating is on the lesser end of the risk spectrum, but we’re taking all available improvement advice from experts and our professional association, the Floatation Tank Association.
Sanitation has always been vitally important to us, but in this pandemic we are going to enhance our normal procedures. Part of that enhancement is the addition of UV-C sanitation lights to the rooms, and portable UV-C sanitation for the insides of the tanks. UV-C has been a standard of clean room technology for years, and I hope this addition will increase your peace of mind. Shipping is still kind of dicey these days, so I don’t have a firm date on their arrival. We’ll also have some changes to the way we do things, but I’ll go into that in a future post.
We will open when we have everything in place to assure maximum safety for you and our staff. Here’s the general checklist we’re using:
- Sanitation supplies (toilet paper, disinfectant, gloves, etc) are easy to source.
- New equipment has arrived, including safety equipment for staff.
- UV sanitation lights have arrived and are in working order.
- Repairs are finished.
- Staff-only soft opening to practice new procedures.
- Soft opening for members.
- Opening to the general public.
We’re looking pretty good on #1. Toilet paper and gloves can still be elusive, but disinfectant, hand sanitizer, and disposable masks are generally available again. I’m confident we have adequate supply on hand. We’re also in good shape on #2: I have a big pile of new Stuff, with more on the way. The rest are in progress, and I’ll keep you posted.
Thank you for your patience as we adapt to this new normal!
